Tuesday we went to the International Adoption Clinic to see the doctor and occupational therapist. We went in hoping for great news and that is exactly what we got!! After watching Daniel interact with the therapist and being asked about a million questions, we got the reults that his motor skills were right on target. They were impressed with his size (which is 25th percentile), his walking abilities (and running!) and overall good nature. They said we had a good one and we would have to agree.
Next we saw an auditory specialist to check his hearing. He was such a good boy that after doing the test with him on my lap just listening to the speakers he even let the nice lady put the headphones in his ears so they could determine if one ear was working better than the other. They also let him test his drums to be sure they were moving properly. The lady was so impressed and she said there wasn't a thing wrong with his hearing. He heard everything!!
Finally we had to have blood taken and that didn't go so well. They tried his arm first but only got one vial so they had to go for his foot. We think this must be how they did it in Russia because as soon as they took off his shoe and then sock he started sreaming. He turned so red and just cried and cried and sreamed and screamed. I was so upset and Troy was the brave one. Afterwards I scooped him up and took him right out of the room not caring if they were done or not. I just wanted him to know we could leave anytime. So...
We rushed him to Burger King, put a crown on him and gave him chicken fries, french fries and a small amount of an oreo sundae milkshake!! He deserved them and apparently he's not allergic to anything. What a way to introduce several new foods!!
